CVLT Nation Presents:
The Hardcore Alphabet
With Andrew from Strife

CVLT Nation is so stoked that STRIFE is back with a vengence with the release of their new album Witness A Rebirth! Now read what inspired Andrew to pick the bands he did for this gnarly mixtape!

The Hardcore Alphabet is a collection of some of my favorite hardcore songs of all time. “Witness A Rebirth” is about taking everything that I learned about hardcore from the bands that inspired me and passing that down to the new generation of hardcore kids… This generation has their favorite bands, their heroes, and their own glory days… All we can do is offer them knowledge that has been passed down to us and hope that they preserve the true spirit of hardcore… Newer bands like Down To Nothing, Rotting Out, Take Offense, and Piece by Piece are doing just that… I get the same energy and inspiration seeing them as I did seeing classic bands such as Judge, Warzone, Chain of Strength, or Infest…

Hopefully this mix inspires you to check out some of the bands both old and new! Thanks for listening!
